EDUC 526: parent teacher conferencing: how to build cooperative and supportive relationships with parents

This course will offer an exploration of how family dynamics impact all of us; teachers, students and parents. Time will be spent on the varying educational perspectives by gaining insight and knowledge of how the stages of healing enter into the teaching and learning environment. We will also tackle the biggest roadblock in education; something we call admiring the problem. It is possible to move from admiring the problem to becoming intervention specialists. Through interactive discussions and group activities, participants will be better equipped to handle the stress involved in the parent-teacher partnership. Participants will walk away with effective strategies that will transform even the most complex parent relationship.
